A top level government delegation is visiting Singapore this week reportedly on a look and learn the mission of the country’s international Ports facilities and desalination plants.
A press statement from the Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet says the delegation is in Singapore at the invitation of the Solomon Islands Ports Authority – the nation’s first State-owned Enterprise engaging a Singaporean firm to carry out its reforms.
Ten Singaporean consultants are carrying out the reforms and will do a presentation on the team’s commercial strategy for Solomon Islands.
The Solomon Islands’ delegation will also hear a presentation on Singapore’s economic development.
Crown Ministers and Members of Parliament currently in Singapore include the Minister for Infrastructure Development Stanley Sofu; the Minister for Commerce, Industries, Labour and Immigration, William Marau; and Caucus Chairman, also the Central Kwara’ae MP Jackson Fiulaua.
A number of political appointees are also in the delegation including the Press Secretary to the Prime Minister Deli Sharon Oso, Ronald Fugui and Sarah Susuta.
While there, members will be taken on site visits to see Singapore’s world-class Ports facilities including desalination plants.
The delegation returns to Honiara next Monday.
